Awesome Beer Super PAC Raises Money To Mediate Congress

There is one key ingredient that has been standing between Congress and a compromise plan to balance the budget: Beer.
That, at least, is what one federally-registered Super PAC is arguing. And in order to save the country from impending financial ruin, the Slam Dunks, Fireworks and Eagles Super PAC is legally collecting unlimited, largely-unregulated beer money to bring happy hour back to Capitol Hill.
“In college we solve our differences by sitting down and having a beer,” said Daniel Bassali, the co-founder of Slam Dunks, Fireworks and Eagles. “I don’t think our congressmen are too proud to accept a collegiate approach to deficit reduction.”
It was that collegiate approach that led Bassali to create his Super PAC in the first place. After the Federal Election Commission approved his political action committee, Bassali said he “really didn’t know where to go with it.”
